Vincent de Kastav, The Flight into Egypt

Church of St. Mary, Beram, Croatia

This fresco is different from the usual Flight into Egypt images. The Christ Child is swaddled. Mary rides a horse, not an ass. It is possible that the person leading the horse is not St. Joseph, since he does not have a halo. The staff usually seen in the hands of St. Joseph is here held by a mature woman walking behind the horse.
